The islands are surrounded by many other species of shallow-water fishes you can hunt for. This area is also best for bottom fishing. Tides can be very important for fishing as the incoming and outgoing tides are going to affect the fishing and your boating activities. Unless you have a tide app, best you keep a book of upcoming tides with you all the time.


Apart from fishing, the Dampier Archipelago Islands also offer some awesome spearfishing! Check out the below video for an insight to what you can catch while spearfishing the islands:
